One of the 4 has been booked, the other 3 – George, Kate and Charlotte, are looking for a home. They need homes with someone about most the day and owners who are committed to training and socialising them. They are all lovely pups and could live with cats, other dogs and respectful children.
Here is a little message from our gorgeous foster boy Tommy telling you all about what he has been up to recently 🙂
Tommy is looking for a very special kind of home with experience. For further info please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello Tommy here – Just taking a break from playing with my doggy mates which is actually when I am happiest, doggy friends are the best as they understand me and I feel so secure when I am with them.
The last few months have been a bit of a roller-coaster ride for me really and I have struggled with all the new sounds and all the new 2 legged humans that always want to touch me and speak to me in a funny language. My 2 mates Bonny & Otto have really helped me to understand that not all of these people are bad and it has been a learning for me watching how they go up to humans easily, so I have just followed them. Bonny is my girlfriend and although she was a bit bossy at first ,like most females she ‘told me what to do & it stopped me being so fearful’ , Otto just likes to play & is a bit dizzy which I love. . We have a lot of different dogs visiting my foster home which I really enjoy especially the younger ones that just want to play.
I will go on a lead quite easily now although I do prefer it if I have doggy friends to walk with. I used to really struggle with doorways/ gateways and I must admit I still find that this can be difficult although my foster mummy says I have really improved and just need to keep trying.
I am much happier in the sitting room now with the TV although if my foster dad has one of those loud films on I do tend to run back into the kitchen although I am getting better.
I am really happy with my foster mummy who will brush me daily, looks at my ears / teeth to make sure I get used to being handled. I really feel comfortable with her but I sometimes still struggle with my foster daddy, although he always has really tasty treats so I will often pop over to see him for some.
Life is getting better and I know that for a family to consider re-homing me I am going to have to relax more to fit in with the human world although I sometimes wonder if I will ever be able to completely be like my mates Bonny & Otto , I have all 4 paws crossed that one day I will be like them.
I have a dream : To live the rest of my life with a pack of doggy friends and some 2 legged friends who will love me.
Signing off now as 2 new doggy friends have just arrived for their holidays and I need to go and welcome them.
Tommy has come to the UK from Romania a very frightened soul. When he first arrived the smallest new sight and sound would frighten him to the point where he just wanted to run away. The human touch would make him flinch with fear.
A brief video about Tommy:
We have been working with Tommy for a few months to help improve his confidence and to show him that this world is not such a bad place after all. It has taken some time to gain his trust and he really is coming on leaps and bounds in learning to be a happy, well socialised dog.
Tommy is going to need a very special home as he is still quite frightened. In the coming weeks we will update you with his progress in his foster home as he learns about life and love and fun.
As the New year begins so does the influx of unwanted dogs, pounds are full to bursting and so are we. Please consider a rescue dog or share our dogs to help us find them loving homes and so make room for another desperate poundie.
